About the Author

Buck Brannaman--a mix of mentor, legend, and folk hero to the thousands who attend his colt-starting and horsemanship clinics each year--is the inspiration for the novel and feature film The Horse Whisperer. The author of Ranch Roping and the coauthor of Believe: A Horseman's Journey (both Lyons Press), he has started more than 10,000 young horses in his clinics. He lives in Sheridan, Wyoming. William Reynolds is the former publisher of The Cowboy Way and Ranch & Reata magazines. He lives in Santa Ynez, California.

Reviews

Brannaman is insightful enough to understand what he's learned from horses, mature enough to apply what he's learned, and articulate enough to pass those thoughts along simply and directly. There's really no need for literary gymnastics. Instead, this is one of those books that stays quietly with you. --DENVER POST
An engaging read. At Heart, The Faraway Horses is a rich and rewarding autobiography that offers a prescription for living a positive and harmonious life - with horses or even without them. --COWBOYS & INDIANS magazine
This autobiography of a cowboy who's a gentler, not a breaker, is a happy mix of eye-opening instruction and inspiration. --TRUE WEST magazine
This book is written in a straightforward style that keeps the reader wanting to learn more. Readers will enjoy the poignant life of one of America's top cowboys. It is nice to know that the horse has an advocate like Buck Brannaman. -- HORSE CONNECTION magazine
"Buck Brannaman is no ordinary horseman. He is demonstrating his way of turning frightened horses into friends, a way that has more to do with respect and trust than mastery or manhandling." --Smithsonian magazine
"When it comes to horses, Buck Brannaman is part guru, part psychologist, and all cowboy. He's a 19th -century man in a 21st-century world, and his life is at once inspirational and instructive." --Tom Brokaw
Buck Brannaman is part of a lineage of skilled horsemen, and for the horses he works with, it is about trust and understanding, not submission. --Robert Redford
Some books are read for their lyricism and literary merit, while books like Brannaman's autobiography are often read more for the insights of a remarkable life. Equal parts life history and specifics of dealing with challenging horses, Brannaman's wisdom is not just suited to horse ,oubut will resonate for anyone who wants to live more harmoniously. --Big Sky Journal
